Yes , there will be an option to choose weather the partition you are restoring is to be Active or not, active makes it a bootable partition, this will be given during the restore image process using Acronis.

Size does not matter as long as there is enough room for the data. so you can theoretically move to a smaller partition.

No problem moving to larger partitions.

Yes, absolutely. Many manufacture's include such software with a drive or as a download on their site to image a drive from one to another one as well for free. But Acronis and other third party utilities also allow an image to be expanded to the full capacity of a new drive, if for whatever reason it doesn't then there are utilities that will re-size the partition after restoring as well.
